Your drive or perhaps the cable is faulty and is not giving the "OK" signal to the laptop allowing it to boot... You will need to replace the faulty part.

Dell Inspiron 1420 is not able to read empty cds or DVDS. My I go to properties it shows empty space as 0. When I try to burn a Cd it says " Insert a blank CD"

Stephen buddy, we need to talk. I do NOT understand anything you are trying to describe. Okay, so you installed a FRESH Operating System and now it is NOT recognizing your DVD-rom, right? Okay, restart the computer and let Windows load up fully. Check Control Panel and check your list of Devices. Sometimes, when you re-install and O.S., you may have to update the firmware or drivers for certain devices.

Hello and Welcome to Fixya.

Seems like you're having a software issue that prevents your system to read/run a disc when inside the operating system. I have included the official fix from Microsoft:

DVD Drive Troubleshooting

All you have to do is to click on "Run Now" and follow the on screen prompts - just remember to eject any CD that you may have inside the drive.

Please note that if this does not work, then the drive needs to be replaced. You may contact dell in case that happens.

Hope this helps and Thanks for using FixYa.

DVD ROM is not booting when i insert the DVD . THE PRODUCT IS sony model PCG-61111W

if u r trying to boot for the first time it will not boot, u need to make some changes to the boot settings.
sometimes it automatically sets to default and u r not able to boot properly.
while starting the system continuesly press F2 or Del key > it will bring out the boot screen > go to the bootin options and make cd/dvd drive as the first booting device.
Then save the settings and exit the boot screen.
after restarting the system ur cd/dvd will be detected.
if does not then there is a problem with the cd/dvd, or may be it not created as a bootable cd/dvd.
try with another cd/dvd.

I am watching a dvd on my dell inspiron 6400 and it is saying special features can be watched if I insert the disk into the DVD-ROM drive on my computer but obviously the disk is already in it.

That is a generic message that assumes you are using a DVD player, not a computer. There should be extra menu items under "Special Features" for PC-DVD material. Poke around the menus and see what you find.

Dell dvd drive not reading vista os dvd

It more than likely won't due to it being an OS. It's usually down to copy protection.

Best thing to do is reset the PC and go into your BIOS settings, then change the boot priorities so it boots from your DVD drive, when you save these settings restart the PC. This will make the PC read from the DVD first instead of the Hard drive for the OS, should bring up a message saying "press any key to boot from disc", then when you do press something it should start up the disc and you can reformat from there.
